The comings and goings of trends is kind of like Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick’s relationship…there are in, then they are out…but one thing is certain, when it comes to make-up trends you can be assured that your investment is lasting.
Unlike certain styles of clothes, cosmetics are pretty versatile. Remember when you had that stellar blue eyeshadow phase?? (If it hasn’t yet expired) don’t toss it, simply add more bronze tones to create a smokey eye with a blue enhancement. Or how about that time when retro red was happening…and now it’s not so happening? Remove excess, so that it looks more so like a stain rather than a lipstick and add a neutral gloss for an everyday look.
EXPENSE THE EXPENSE:
When contemplating a splurge, if you are looking at getting the most for your money, ask yourself a few questions:
“Will these colours/products work in the majority of season with my skin tone?”
“Is this a quality product?
“Is it super trendy?”
“How long will this product last me?”
In the majority of cases (meaning 90%) you are getting what you paid for. So remember this is going on your face and will affect the appearance of the makeup as well as your skin after you take it all off, so don’t be too cheap when it comes to make up. Make the investment.
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
Even if you are considering a product because it’s “trendy” such as Urban Decays Electric Palette, remember this is going on your face…and can be used in more everyday ways if you think outside the box. This Palette is all about the insane color choices, but as I mentioned earlier if you diffuse the intense colours with some neutrals it can work as an accent for your eye color.
HAVE THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
Choose products that you know will not only work for you but also be of the best quality. Don’t sabotage your wallet or your face for something super cheap and trendy. Go for something of quality
and that’s versatile.
